So I heard of this thing called choices.
A strange and wondrous thing when applied to ongoing and appropriate best suitable place for medical care.
Someone I know and respect had to do multiple somersaults to book their own treatments via internet using codes and passwords and time and effort they didn't have too much of to do this herculean job.
They managed it after much stress and self questioning as to whether they'd done it correctly.
I didn't think this was fair as her choice was to ask the doctor to book it all for her. The doctor said that option was not available.
So much for choice.
I had a letter today also involving choice. Essentially it was can I phone them to confirm I'd chosen a treatment that I'd already agreed with my consultant. My cost of call to confirm something I already agreed to. And the call was supposed to be to arrange an appointment, but turns out it was only to confirm I want one.
I await another letter for an un booked date sometime in june which they told me I'd again have to phone to confirm.
If they'd just agreed the date on the call I made at their request.
Choices? I wonder.
